Malegaon: Started as a noble cause and an appreciable initiative to
bring smile on the faces of poor and marginalized, mass marriages and
wedding ceremonies, though a norm across the globe, are mostly
organized nowadays as an event to garner political mileage and
publicity.

Worst, at some of such events, couples are subjected to humiliation
and even made to realise their status, and also the favour the
organisers “extend” to them.

Malegaon had the one organized on Tuesday January 24, but it was of a
totally different kind to what we read about in newspapers
occasionally.

It was the 4th ‘Mass Wedding Ceremony” organised by Dada Bhuse,
Minister of State for Cooperation in Maharashtra Government. But, what
was special about this year’s event was along with the 94 couples
belonging to different faiths, religions and castes, Ajinkya Bhuse,
Dada Bhuse’s elder son, also decided to tie the nuptial knot in the
mass marriage function organized by his father.
